1124 Eaton Street as it appeared in July 2010 when it was Bank Owned
1124 Eaton Street in September 2011 now privately owned and renovated
I wrote about the little house located near the busy corner of White and Eaton Streets and across the street from Strunk Ace Hardware and Manley deBoer Lumber. CLICK HERE to read what I wrote about the little house when it was Bank Owned and offered for sale at just $158,400. I had several potential buyers call me or email me on this house. I told them they needed to act quickly because the price was so low that someone would grab it up right away. I remember one guy asking me how much lower he could bid to get the property. I told him it would likely sell for more than the asking price. It did. 1124 Eaton Street was on the market only 3 days and sold for $175,000 or $16,600 over the asking price.
I have been watching progress on the house and noticed that it is nearly complete. The landscaping has not been installed yet. Otherwise, the place looks just great. When I blogged about the house I suggested:
The house is bigger on the inside than it appears from the outside. Or so it seemed to me. I have no idea as to the condition of the plumbing, electrical, or anything else except I can say without equivocation the house needs tented. Termites have worked their way around this house over many years. The place needs HARC approved windows and door installed. The outside needs scraped, cleaned, and a new coat of paint applied. The roof should probably be replaced and with HARC's approval, the ugly lean-to carport replaced with something a little more suitable. I would add brick pavers and some landscaping and re do the front porch.
My suggestions were the kinds of things most owners would have done. This owner chose a simple color pallet and didn't do anything goofy. The result is understated elegance.
